Two women have been arrested after assaulting a guest at a bar in the Kuta area with a beer bottle, causing the victim to suffer serious injury.
The suspects have been identified as 27-year-old Andi Lelati Ashari Jusuf from Jakarta and 33-year-old Irene Prisiliasapulete from Ambon. They were arrested from their boarding house by the police officers in Bali on June 28th 2021. The Head of the Kuta Criminal Investigation Bureau, Iptu Made Putra Yudistira explained that an investigation regarding this case began after an officer from the Kuta Police Department received a report from the victim regarding the incident that occurred on June 18th 2021.
“Our investigation began when the victim who was identified as a 32-year-old woman named Yuliana from Lombok filed a report regarding the incident that caused her to suffer from a serious head injury that evening.” Iptu Yudistira said on Monday (5/7). The incident occurred when Yuliana left to go home from Mick Dundee’s bar that is located on Jalan Padma Timur Legian, Kuta. The situation escalated quickly as Yuliana became offended by the suspect after having an argument in front of the bar, becoming angry Yuliana decided to splash a beer at Jusuf. Jusuf immediately assaulted the victim using a bottle of beer and left the scene when by-standers attempted to separate the angry women.
A few moments later, the other suspect named Irene suddenly assaulted Yuliana as well. After a few days of investigation the officers finally arrested both suspects in separate locations. During the interrogation, the suspects admitted that the reason behind the assault was jealousy. “The suspects and victim were actually friends, but apparently both of them love the same expat man.” Iptu Yudistira added. Both suspects have been detained inside the Kuta Police Department as the investigation is still underway.
